* After the Authors of Pain win their debut match on Raw, they ditch Paul Ellering. Why would they suddenly ditch him? Remember when he returned to the WWE with the Legion of Doom and betrayed them for the Disciples of Apocalypse? Ellering justified his actions by [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness comparing LoD to an old horse to be shot]]. The AoP [[ProperlyParanoid likely knew about it and wanted to avoid that happening to them]].

* The Miz wanting Wrestling/JohnCena to state that he was Awesome if Alex Riley defeated him in a cage match. Compared to what Cena has gone through the past year or so, pretty lame right? But considering that Cena has focused more on The Rock than Miz (Despite facing the latter at Wrestlemania for the world title), one could get the sense that despite all that has happened Cena ''still'' thinks of The Miz as a joke. So while the stipulation may sound tame, but when you consider the possibility of having the one guy who, despite your accomplishments, always saw you as a joke state that you're not. All of a sudden, Miz' stipulation doesn't sound so lame.

* Why was Eve, despite being a heel by that time, suddenly back of Zack Ryder's side for the 7-on-7 tag match at ''WrestleMania 28''? She was just a mole for Team Johnny the entire time! When Zack and Eve did the "woo-woo-woo" taunt, it forced the referee to escort Eve out of the ring. This distracted Zack and allowed the Miz to hit a Skull-Crushing Finale and get the pinball for the win. ''That was her plan all along.''

* An episode of ''Raw'' ended with Kane having Wrestling/EveTorres cornered backstage, cowering and screaming. The next week she passionately kisses Wrestling/JohnCena in the "heat of the moment". The next week she reveals she had been using John Cena and Wrestling/ZackRyder all along. She gets dubbed a "Hoeski" and publicly shamed by Cena. It's heavily implied that Kane ''raped'' her. We could have been booing the actions of a rape victim - who had possibly gone mad from the experience.

* Remember [[Horrible/{{WWE}} the infamous]] [[http://www.wrestlecrap.com/inductions/eddiesplotation-2006-gooker-award-winner/ "Eddiesplotation"]] angle? If Wrestling/{{Eddie|Guerrero}}'s best friend Wrestling/ChrisBenoit's death hadn't been [[PaterFamilicide so horrific]] to the point of [[CanonDiscontinuity the WWE erasing him from its history]], there's a good chance that WWE creative would have done the same with him.

* The theme for NXT Season 5 is "Redemption," meaning that the rookies from the past [[strike:four]] three seasons[[note]]Not counting the all-Diva season[[/note]] have a chance to earn a spot in Season 6, each with new pros such as Chavo Guerrero, JTG and Hornswoggle (which is stupid). The returning rookies? Titus O'Neil, Lucky Cannon, Connor O'Brien, Byron Saxton, Jacob Novak, and ...[[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Darren Young]]? Considering that not only was he part of [[TheNexus The (original) Nexus]], but he was already a regular on "[[BShow Superstars]]" and even has had own theme music.

* At the 2013 ''Money in the Bank'': Why was AJ stupid enough to attack Del Rio with the Divas title even though she knew it would cost Ziggler the match? By that point, Del Rio was heel and Ziggler face, but AJ remained a heel. AJ attacked Del Rio ''to intentionally cost Ziggler the title''.

to:

* The Big Show's betrayal at ''Over The Limit 2012''. Most people would think that it was a nonsensical Russo-esque swerve, with Big Show aligning with Laurinaitis despite the fact that the latter humiliated and fired the former for making fun of his voice. But remember that Big Show said his turn was based on the lack of sympathy he got from the rest of the face roster. Since Johnny's job was on the line with his match against Cena, and he couldn't use any outside assistance from his allies or they would lose their jobs. Since firing someone close to him would come off as suspicious, he knew he had to get rid of a face, and shortly before the event, trick him into believing nobody cared about him anymore and that even Cena showed no real sympathy for him, as evident by treating his feud with Laurinaitis as a joke. With the "iron-clad contract" Laurinaitis promised him if he helped him win, Show would be able to get his revenge on Cena and then on everyone else who failed to stand up for him. And Johnny would have found a way to save his job again.

Added DiffLines:

* First and foremost, the logo. The company's name is "WWE," but their logo only says "WW." Where is the E? Well, try tilting the logo sideways (toward the right,) and you can find where the E is.

* Many complain that Dean hasn't defended his US title as much as a he should, but it makes perfect sense given that they were with Wrestling/TheAuthority between August of 2013 and April of 2014. They protected him and made sure he didn't have as many defenses in order to avoid a repeat of Seth's and Roman's loss of their Tag Team titles in the hand of Wrestling/CodyRhodes and Wrestling/{{Goldust}}. Said loss happened because the Authority wanted to punish Cody and Goldust. Right after their defection, Dean had to defend his US title in a Fatal Four Way.

* On the September 2nd, 2013 episode of Raw, we find out that Triple H approved the match between CM Punk vs Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman. Why? Punk's obsession with Paul Heyman borders on Tunnel Vision. He is ignoring everything else that is going on in the company. Think about it; Triple H ''wants'' Punk's focus to be on Paul Heyman. Remember Punks promo on Raw that kick-started the Summer of Punk? Imagen if Punk started to focus on what was happening to Daniel Bryan?
